Man's New Best Friend: Duck Plays Fetch
Man's New Best Friend: Duck Plays Fetch, This highly motivated mallard looks nothing like a dog, but it sure acts like one. We've always said that we would own a duck if only it played fetch. There's nothing more irritating than a dog that doesn't play fetch to us, so the clear obstacle in making room for a Mallard is the ability to retrieve.
But now it seems we have no excuse. This video popped up this week and is currently getting more and more popular on the web, and despite the poor quality of the visual, it's undeniable: the bird is highly motivated to return objects cast away.
Sold yet? Oh sure, training a duck probably isn't as cut and dry as this fetch session seems. Plus, you have to constantly worry about the little guy or gal running flying away. But this bird's our favorite. You might say he gets top billing in our book. (Shameless, we know.)
